amazing things about san francisco is that over the last couple of hundred years of our history we have had some pretty amazing people live in the city and county of san francisco. people from all walks of life who have made tremendous contribution to the city and in the process not only made seven cisco better place and made the state and the country and the world a better place. the reason i moved forward - in a factor deputy attorney for his support and drafting this as well as city attorney. the reason is a very personal one. for me, coming to terms with my own sexuality, not on the density is not something that happened easily. unfortunately for many of us who are members of the lgbt community is a process that many of us have had to go through and many of us are going through. the one good thing happening is that the process of coming to terms of who you are is becoming easier for a lot of people it is quite gratifying for me to see so many young people for homecoming out is a member of the lgbt community is no longer seen as a big deal. the fact remains that there are numerous ai

. just as when we in san francisco see not only what the military can bring to the party and help us with, not only how we can interact with the military, but also we say to ourselves, it's also up to us to do everything we can for ourselves. we're not kind of an outfit, it's easier for them to collaborate with us. so, all of these things are important to us as we have these exercises. so, i say this is a very worthwhile enterprise that will keep going. i tip my hat to my friend mike who really has been leading us in these efforts. and now i say as also the slogan, i guess you call it this morning, maybe it's what the navy says. i think it's a very good phrase. a global force for good. that's what we've been practicing, a global force for good. thank you.

to san francisco in terms of business from the '70s with his bagel shop that his permit be granted and i appreciate your time. thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> yes, good evening. my name is scott cronenburg and i want to document some of the history of gary goldstein as a business person. that has benefited san francisco. in 1979 gary and i opened holy bagel in what was known then as the mission district. we had to go through numerous hearings with the planning commission to get a conditional use permit. but we prevailed and the outcome of that was that we eventually had four successful stores in san francisco generating thousands of dollars in sales tax, license fees, paraphernalia payroll taxes. the original holy bagel is still in business on 24th street. it's now going on 34 years. gary has only benefited the city of san francisco through community outreach, donations. he has donated food products and money from anywhere from casa delas mad reses to the san francisco unified school district. i believe it's the job of city and county of san francisco to create

that we may not be aware of at this moment. i want to thank all advocates for coming to speak to me about this issue. i appreciate it i will support the 1.4 million but not the 843,000. >> supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: i will hold my vote from the last time around, support the 1.4 million dollars. this is a debate we have been having. we will lose about 30-40 million from the state. mayor lee already last week appropriated 7.2 million dollars out of the reserve for our own safety net so we are drawing that. i don't see the nexis from the state reserve. i have no problem spending in our kids education, to draw from our state reserve to put us further in the hole to me is the wrong approach. >> supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos i would like to begin by welcoming once again our newly elected colleagues, supervisors yee and breed. it is exciting when we take our own new board of supervisors, and i look forward to working with you. there are many votes that we cast in this chamber and in some respects it is only fitting that one of the first votes that this new board starting its new term takes is his vote. this is one of the most important issues that we will be dealing with in one of the most important vote that we will be taking as his term proceeds. supervisor kim, i want to thank you for your leadership but i want to piggyback about what supervisor avalos said, talking about in some respects two different cities. and what happens to some people in san francisco. we are a city of great wealth. we have because of a lot of different reasons we are fortunate enough that we have more resources in san francisco then many places throughout the state and throughout this country. but the reason why this vote is so important is that even though we as a board of supervisors do not have actual governance of the schools, what we have done in san francisco over the years because of the work of people like -- and gavin newsom and others is that we have recognize that where our state and federal government have fallen short in fulfilling their duties and obligations to properly funding public schools we a city government have stepped in and fill those gaps. the important point is not for us and giving the school district money that it is already entitled to. i'm glad that we will comply with what the law already requires in the intent of those measures were. the whole point of the supplemental is to recognize that we have a fundamental problem in our hands. business as usual is no longer acceptable. we have a city of great wealth; we have the highest performing urban school district in the entire state of california. one of the highest performing urban school districts in the entire country. and yet, for certain groups of kids the system is failing them. and in fact we know that for certain kids that you are talking about, latino kids, african-american kids, english language learner kids, they have a better shot at success in other school districts in the bay area than they do in the san francisco school district. we have to change that. this appropriation is about recognizing that while money is not the only answer, money is part of the answer. this is about closing the achievement gap which is one of the single most important challenges that we are facing as a city. that is why this vote is so important. and so i would once again - and i have a lot of respect for my colleagues and i understand the reasoning that has been reticulated - but the reason why i am against, by releasing money that the district is entitled to, we are not doing anything -- it would be a mistake for san francisco not to make this choice now. for everyday, every month that we delay making that additional expenditure the achievement gap with some students is going to grow wider and will become more expensive to close it. i hope that we support this item. and again i want to thank supervisor kim and the other cosponsors. and i look forward to working with our new colleagues. >> president: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: i'm glad that supervisor mar mentioned it. i want to congratulate san francisco unified school district for passing its annual financial audit % which it always does % but for the first time ever passing without any findings. it was reported in the examiner. the auditors themselves said they had never seen a government agency past without any findings. the fact that the school district is marking every "i" and crossing every "t" -- i want to thank the superintendents. it is the highest performing urban school district. the leadership and work of many dedicated teachers and educators in that agency, in an agency very committed to closing that achievement gap because despite of having the top performer school district we also have the widest achievement gap. only in the last year we have seen a steady decrease in the gap and for me the investment is going to further decrease the gap. i am sorry i not mention the members of the committee, advocates, members of the san francisco parent -- college track, booker t. washington, -a -for your many months of work on this issue. the budget is always a choice, a choice of priorities. this rises to the top in terms of how we spent our general fund dollars i know we don't. all agree with where the source of funds come from. we have a 15 million dollar estate reserve fund, and now we have a 74 million dollar revenue top of that because of the increase in the economy. for me the commitment to the community is that if we are helping companies grow in the city and helping them prosper, that funding will eventually come back down to the community, support the communities that needed the most. >> supervisor breed: i am excited to be here. thank you to all of my colleagues for being so welcoming. i'm having a hard time with this legislation. as a product public schools i remember years ago and now i'm not that old % i remember the decisions and bad decisions. i have watched over the years, working with many of the kids especially teens, the problems that continue to face. as executive director of the african-american art and culture complex, i have to pay for tutors and work with kids who were high school but who could not read and understand by the time they are in high school. i have yet to see a successful program that helps to address the issues that many of these teens face. i have a real concern with getting money -- (correction) giving money, when it is not clear how the money will be used. i came to the office and made it clear that children will be a number one priority. in this case, i think that would supervisor kim is doing with legislation in this way is a great step, but i have seen time and time again a lot of waste. services don't necessarily reach these children. we have kids who are continuously not graduating. i still don't see a real plan from school district as to how they are going to actually serve this population, what's being cut, what's been changed, what's being moved. it's just not completely clear to me. i am coming in this is been on the table for some time now % i have gotten phone calls from a number of people, a lot of different explanations. when i look at the legislation, i think it is clear that it is appropriate for us to give excuse me for a second % the 1 point - where are we? i apologize. i lost my place. the amount we are entitled to give to the school district. i have real can sermons about being supportive of providing 843,000 in state reserves until i know specifically where this money is going the accountability, and i don't want to micro manage the school district but i want to see a more comprehensive plan as to how they plan to use these funds. i would like to see the school district take the leadership and provide an overall plan that this is how we will tackle this problem, these are the kids that we will target; these are the organizations that will help us get to the point that these get for graduate. i don't see that plan. 843,000 in a 7 billion dollar budget seems like a drop in the bucket. the reality is that i'm not seeing results in my community for these kids. unfortunately it makes it very challenging for me as a supervisor to say that just because this is for the kids i am willing to support this legislation. i am prepared to be supportive if amended which i don't know if it's going to be amended to provide the school district with the amount that they are definitely entitled to and without a real plan, a comprehensive plan i cannot be supportive of 843,000 in state reserves until that time. >> any further discussion? two votes on this is supervisor wiener has asked us to do. 843,000 and the second vote on the remainder. roll call. >> supervisor breed: no. >> supervisor campos: no president: aye. >> supervisor farrell: no >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor mar: aye >> supervisor wiener: no >> supervisor yee: aye 7 ayes, 4 no's. that portion of the ordinance is passed. the balance. >> supervisor breed: aye. >> supervisor campos: aye >> supervisor chiu: aye >> president: aye >> supervisor cohen: aye >> supervisor farrell: aye >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor wiener: >> supervisor yee: aye >> supervisor avalos: aye 11 ayes. >> that portion of the ordinance is also passed. item 13. the resolution of holding the department of public works recommendation. roll call. >> supervisor breed: aye >> supervisor campos: aye >> president: aye >> supervisor chiu: aye >> supervisor cohen: aye >> supervisor farrell: aye >> supervisor kim: aye >> supervisor mar: aye >> supervisor wiener: aye >> supervisor yee: aye >> supervisor avalos: aye >> 11 ayes. resolution is adopted. >> item 14. >> president: this ordinance is passed on the first reading. next item. >> 15. >> this ordinance is passed first read. next item. >> item 16. (agenda) >> supervisor chiu. >> supervisor chiu: this item came before the finance committee last week and had a robust discussion centered around the fact that only 6 million would go into direct subsidies. we have a questions about the rest whether it was overhead. in any grant or you have 13 million in only 6 million reaches the beneficiary seems like a low percentage. we had questions about that. since that time the department of the environment sent additional documentation where they have broken out what additional work they do above and beyond the 6 billion dollars in direct subsidy. they show that about 1.4 goes in the benchmarking and outreach, scheduling visits, site surveys, following up with contractors. at this point in comfortable with supporting this item. i wanted to share with the board some of the conversation that has happened and it is a good item to look for in any grant, how much of the direct overhead we are charging versus what goes out to businesses. in the situation in particular around energy efficiency just being able, to reach around businesses is an important thing and do it in the language and the effort to share with people what they can do to help. i am going to support this item and wanted to share the data presented by doe. >> can we take this item, same house and call? without objection this ordinance is passed in the first reading. item 17. >> same house same call. this resolution is adopted. item 18. >> president: same house same call this resolution is adopted. item 19. supervisor mar. >> supervisor mar: i wanted to thank my co-author supervisor avalos, but especially breathe california in a coalition of tobacco free and health advocates. in 2012 they were 250 street festivals and fairs in san francisco from carnavals to the chinese year. all of these events attract smokers. this is an important ordinance that will make sure that we have more smoke-free festivals and events. exposure to secondhand smoke kills about 3000, non-smokers from lung cancers and 46,000 non-smokers of heart disease in the u.s. also individuals with asthma and other respiratory illnesses that is why such a strong coalition including young people from sf state to the asthma task force and the coalition working to make sure we have more smoke-free places in san francisco. research shows that exposure to second-hand home outdoors is just as bad as endorsed. this is the first city to have an ordinance about smoke-free festivals. there is no safe level of exposure to secondhand spoke, several studies show that exposure again, outdoors can reach levels the same as endorse and can be just as dangerous. for quite a few months i have been working with various groups, breathe california, the department of public health, support with broad sectors. requires that no smoking signs be posted, two,several announcement be made that the event is smoke-free and all promotional material includes information that the event is smoke-free. in the case of repeated violations the director of transportation in the inter agency which coordinates transit and transportation will consider all violations. san francisco would become the first large city in the us to adopt this type of regulation. also want to correct one of the findings. i want to urge strong support and again thank my co-author supervisor avalos. thank you. >> president: is there second to the amendment? seconded by supervisor farrell. without objection the amendment will be added. >> supervisor kim: i appreciate the legislation coming before us. i have a quick question for the author. the number of announcements to be made at the festival. is that enforceable? do we need to prescribed to that extent? i believe the members attending should know. but if we have to do it to that level of detail. >> the vice president of breathe california has said this is largely public education effort does not have any additional enforcement attached to it. the more public awareness, announcements from stage, people will get more familiar and self-patrol. we are working with event producers, and others, super they will be fully aware of the requirements but it is important to have regular and periodic announcements. >> president: can we take this ordinance and to same house same call? this ordinance is passed in the first reading as amendment. colleagues we have with us the changing change of rules, shifted our special accommodation period from 3:30 to 2:30. the commending parties are here. i would like to know supervisor mar. >> supervisor mar: i and standing for families and children, tremendous community supporter. i see jonathan lions from the board. if you want to come forward in support, you're welcome to do so. i want to say that pat house isretiring from 23 years of service to the richmond district. it is a 33-year-old organization that sits in a 1920 building. the former san francisco unified school district billing. i think it is really a shining example of a community standing together to build it can indeed from the youngest of the oldest. patricia has led the rdnc in supporting children, teenagers, families and seniors from all backgrounds by providing valuable multicultural arts and recreational programs. she has built the center to be a multipurpose, multiethnic face where everybody of diverse backgrounds feels at home. gatherings at the center, advocated on behalf of the city level to develop rdnc to a thriving, multipurpose community center. and all the centers around the city, for them pat has been a champion. through her warmth and sense of humor and wonderful effort that brings people to the center i think that she has led with tremendous integrity and vision that has served the neighborhood. she is an outstanding role model for all the children in richmond and the city as well. through patricia's tireless efforts he has addressed many critical need throughout the richmond district. she has fostered respect for all people and the environment and improve the lives of tens of thousands of individuals and their families. a one to invite my colleagues to join me in congratulating patricia in retiring after 23 years of service. we will vote on declaring january 17 as patricia -- day and congratulate her on her retirement. pat townsend. (applause) >> thank you so much. thank you supervisor mar thank you all for your very hard work on behalf of the city and county of san francisco, and the san francisco school district. i hold in my heart in particular the san francisco school district. my husband and my children are graduates of the school district and my grandchildren are beginning at lafayette elementary. thank you so much supervisor kim. this is been a wonderful, wild, and crazy ride. i started at the center 20 hours a week. as a landlady. we have two tenants, cross-cultural learning center, 2-5 year olds. and we have community music center, over 100-year old arts providing service to the city and county of san francisco that is outstanding. these 23 years of it just did mine. there have been many efforts to keep people in the richmond district and beyond good and viable services. we serve people from all over the city at the richmond neighborhood center. we work from schools that feed from all over the city. our staff are expanding. here today are several of our staff and several board members working hard in this transition. they did not know what they got themselves into when they decided to come on this board. the year has been a year of last times for me, last meetings, last this last that. i have to say that it is when your colleagues your your peers thank you. behind me are my peers. they represent not just the west side of the city but all of the city. we work very closely with families. thank you all for this wonderful, wonderful opportunity. we also have our new executive director here, charles higgins.

barrowers reis city institution in that case averaged $500 per claim and are more than 800 claims were filed and it was a tremendous success and we hope hope i check 'n go effort is just as

californiafirst five and the mission economic development agency and finally, johnathan sagaa chose were the commission economic development agency i can't tell you how important it is that this be a coordinated effort as many of you may be familiar in the money mart settlement we traveled you will and upand down the sate press confrontation in sacramento and reached ow to bars throughout the state of california to achieve an unprecedented level of success for a predatory lending effort and we would not have been able do that without the corporation of elected throughout the state and

victim iressed and that they get the restitution that they deserve and i would like to introduce michael papist from the enter face-to-face 98 counsel because he was a big part in making sure we got our effort out to the 98 community and to make sure that borrowers who were vimsed got the restitution they deserved and we are happy he is cooperating in our effort for the next 90 days. >> p oop pennsylvania a s.-the san francisco enter fate counsel is absolutely indebted if you will forgive the pun to his city treasure her heira in this suspicious when this program started. we believe that the victims of predatory lending are sill the in in our pews and we work with faith-based organization to provide the safety yet and net and we are here today to commit ourselves again to the good work that dennis is doing and in the past, we have used our technology network to reach out to the congregations and in turn, they are letting their congregg gant know, we are here, we are concerned and we are committed partners. >> thank you and once again that you to all of the community representatives here and treasurer jose sises narrows [spelling?] has been a wonderful partner and the bank on san francisco program is a great gram and gives some of our most vulnerable another place to go it a responsible lending program which helps folks get the assistance they need and deserve so so thank you very much for being here and i'm happy to take any questions that you may have. >>> [inaudible] >> instructor: in general, let me just -- in you find that pay day lending operations, oftentimes focus in some of our economically vulnerable communities to take advantage of those individuals who might not think they have any alternative but go to a pay day lending operation that to a have lending needs met. san francisco is actually has some of the highest density of pay day lenders in the country and two largest operation are monday mart loan mart and check 'n go and they are the two largest pay day lending operation in the country and they have locations up and down the west coast, seattle is a very densely populated with pay day lending populations san francisco is as well but there are hot spots throughout the state of california where pay day lenders trying los angeles, valley. the fresno. and unfortunately, many times pay day lending operations take advantage of those economically vulnerable who think that they don't have another alternative evaporation sable it them and in these very tough economic times we know that some families are living pay check to pay check and oftentimes they are working poor and they are individuals who are under employed or under employed pa they depend on that pay check every week to nurse their families and so in very difficult economic times mayday lending operations thrive and they take advantage dispawnts now there are some that play by the rules but in this circumstances we found that check 'n go was not playing by the rules and adhering to california's interest rates limits and we are partnering with a bank to get around those limit and is so san francisco is a hot spot, central valley and we are going to work with focuses throughout the state to make sure that folks get the restitutions that they deserve and that is why it's so important that we partner with focus up and down the state and now by example.ion hundred. there ended up beingion hundred valid claims that were paid in terms of people that were vimsed in the thousand and is so it's very important that we debate the word ow to make sure we get as many people to respond as much as possible to get the rest restitution that they deserve. >> so can you explain what check 'n go did wrong that was a violation of the rules or law or what are they doing now that will be different, well they partnered with an outof state bank to seasonally say that we are no longer subject to the limits and 36 apr that is set in article california law and they partnered with an out-of-state bank and said, we are subject to federal segregation gleyings and is think charged an apr of four 100% and so they have agreed to abide by california's limits they have discontinued that relationship with the out-of-state bank and as they also have established this settlement fund to repay eligible bars to get restitution until the amounts that i described. >>> so if you go door loan do you have a comparison to give us an idea. average income or middle income do you have a concrete example of something like that to put dollars and cents of how much they were screwed? i can testimony you this it's har hard to come up with a timcal case but what you say because the interest rates being charged people could not get the principal paid down or the interest rate paid down because the number accumulating continued to glow and what you saw in that circumstances is not only and people have an inability to pay loans off they continued to go out and get more loans to keep themselves a flowed. >>> >>> in san francisco --. >> treasure assist narrows has a program called bank on san francisco which, is designed to provide financial resources to the working poor and others who oftentimes fall victim to pay day lending operations. i'm not totally familiar with how the program works if there is something here that could talk about it, i'm happy to have them educate folks about what is available to them but bank on san francisco is something that started here by has been modeled in other communities as well. >>> my name is mar co and i'm here on behalf of treasure sises narrows and our office began a program to help people move away from check cashers and pay day lender and is we are happy to partner with assist narrows here because we do a program called pay day plus s s which, is a program collaborative of credit unions that provide a loan between 50 there is to $500 with an interest rate of no more than 18% apr that they get to pay back in six months to a year and whereas, traditional lenders charge a higher apr and they have to pay it back by the next pay period. if you are interested a visit us at pay day will you state or find free ed cigs counseling alternative to pay day cashers and lender and is check state wide as well. and if you are interested in learning more about our programs or offices you can visit our website to see the array of services at s f or g. mark cor calf marine. a ra r i n and our website is www.s f s e.org. >> would there be any reason that anybody would neat tneed go to a pay day store. >>> yeah, many check cashers and pay day lenders combined out number mc donald and starbucks many there are banks and credit unions in san francisco and so the volume that they provide is difficult to keep up with and which, is why the treasurer found out efforts to work with the attorney and to provide eferlts for folk and is as you take away one, there is a lot of people who may be good canned details and who may not be able to find a good alternative in their neighborhood and so a lot of focus who have good increase but may be struggling to make a next payment they take out $300 and pay $45 in fee and is then find had a they cannot pay that loan off in the next two weeks that is required and so they find themselves repeating that system from one pay day lender to another ten times and you will ultimately they will pay the $800 for the initial $300 finding themselves in a bad situation and with our credit you know partners we vid people an alternative that consolid dates an alternative where they can build their credit and find a better alternative so that in the future they don't have to turn to a pay day lender. >>> the scenario you gave is if they are doing it legally so it can be worse. >> the pay day leaped lenders that we can taking about today are charging four 100% apr and the person walked in a signs a check for $300 and aunts that person in crisis cannot pay it offer in three weeks and then they tell them to go across the street and take out another loan to pay them back and so this is done and a lot of folks find themselves in that situation and don't have an alternative and the big sir is that there is only four-five credit unions in san francisco and 500 credit unions nationally that offer a pay day loan alternative and people don't know how to find those alternative and is so part of our program is to help people find out about those alternatives. >> we are talking about the percentage four 100% and 36% being what the standard should be with check 'n go and when when they partnered with a state organization when you are talking about organizations here that by standard practice what is the breakdown? >>> no they are not standard four 100% and you are limited 36% apr and anybody doing anymore is breaking the law they partner with an out-of-state bank to get to that number. >> do you have to live in san

secrets here but i'm going to tell you the importance of that was to get the word out and to -- whenever we however which need to get the wore word out we are going to it because as i said, earlier, the settlement calls for reasonable efforts. reason events are open to interpretation. so, that is why it's incredible important that we partner with these folks standing up here to get the world out and the calling may be video was very successful in what it was intended to do and if you look at the spike, in claimants that we had file after that went out it got attention, it got the word out. it forced people to look at the information that was online or call our hot lines and we are going to what we need do to get the word out to make sure that the maximum inform no. of people who are

we are going to be just as successful if not normore than we were last time, so if you can only dish out 2 million to get -- more this year. >> no, similar to money mart if they would have hit their maximum that number would have been up to me to decide where to goes to various none profits or folks involved in financial literacy and quite frankly, i didn't want that responsibility i wanted the money go back to the individuals who needed to get it i much rather see the money go to them than me decide where that money goes and same in this case. >>> do you think there are -- house u.s. thousands? >> and this is people who got loans online, and so if you are talking about going in and get ago exploan going back across the street --. >> that is right and that was the primary means of their marketing their program it differented a little bit from the money mart scenario whereas, that, it wasn't just focused on online borrowers there were individuals going into stores this is a little bit different and so you have to tailor it to each one. >>> and online it was also rolled over and snow bald. >> i believe that to be true. >>> is this check 'n go the umbrella and then they have several marketing schemes? >> these are the websites that we have established and that are there to enable people to get as much information as they possibly can and that is the website that we have highlight and had there is a number of websites. >>> >>> do they admitted wrong doing. >> no. i do not comment on my settlement notion but that is not uncommon in settlements had a we reach and the important thing is that people get the money they are entitled to last question. >>> [inaudible] . >> did we have that? we can get back to you on that. >>> how about just one last question? >>> at

take pride this the work that this office does along side our other elected officials and community partners especially at this time of year to bring some financial relief to folks that are strugglings that is rewarding and that is why we are in this business and this is why we have other elect elected officials in this for all the trucestic reasonses do good and make a difference in people's lives and this is irrespective of when you accomplish it but, i'll say that it's an added sweetener as it were to top announced in the holiday time when we know there are folks that are struggling and blink a little bit of relief to them and on the path to financial stability that is a rewarding thing. thank you very much. >> hi, in san francisco we're doing a special series called stay safe, about staying in your home after an earthquake. and today we're going to be talking about the neighborhood support center to help people find new resources when they stay in their home. ♪ ♪ >> we're here at the urban center in san francisco with sarah karlewski, deputy director of spur. we're talking about the shelter, a safe place to stay, exhibition at their center. and part of being able to shelter in place in your home is to be able to find a place nearby where you can get the services that you might not have in your home. and that's what this little neighborhood support center is for. >> that's right. >> what are some of the services that might be provided in a neighborhood center like this? >> yeah. so, we think of the neighborhood support centers as really being homes away from home. so, after a major earthquake there is going to be a lot of confusion. people are going to need to try to meet up with other people. they're going to need a lot of information. so, a lot of what the neighborhood support center is going to provide is that information. basically we're going to be like a hub where people can come to get services, help, information, et cetera. what you see here on this table are a whole variety of did you ever rent things from tools, some walki-talkies. this helps people know what is going on in their neighborhood. over here you have a whole variety of water and canned goods. we're really hoping that people will stock up for themselves at least for the first 72 hours if not more. i know that i have a ton of canned food and other sorts of things such as water within my own home. and everybody should, but there's going to come a time where people are going to end up running out and needing more. so, that's what we've got right here. >> so, this neighborhood support center, this doesn't look to be a major city sponsored fully stocked space. it can be a small commercial space, even somebody's garage as long as they have the information, a guide of information, who to call for what, communications equipment, some power, have a generator. >> that's right. >> thinking of lights and charge your cell phones and so on. and probably be operated by volunteers. >> volunteers, maybe members of nert could help out, people who live in the neighborhood that have some building skill could be helpful. so, if there is a structural engineer living nearby or even an architect, they could really help people kind of understand what has happened to their homes and what sort of repairs might be needed. >> here we are with some of the things that you might find in a neighborhood support center. one thing we learned from hurricane katrina, people really rely on their portable electronics and their phone. we say here's a charging station tied up to the generation. the essential coffeepot. >> yes. >> maybe a computer, you can check your e-mail with. >> yes. we have our charging station here. and then over here you can
